Kirkman has said on multiple occasions that the most beloved characters get the most brutal deaths. Glenn was about as beloved as they come, so this was pretty expected. 

That said, I can certainly see how it would be too graphic for a lot of people. Agree that they could have toned it down, but I personally didn't have a problem with it either way.

Big Game Bob was probably planning on lining up in a 3-4 D, giving them a "schematic advantage"...but then Urban dropped that story about the last time they did that in his presser today to let him know they'd be ready for it. Now it's back to the drawing board.

I go to Philly every few months and have tried quite a few cheesesteaks. My favorite is Jim's, and Dalessandro's is a close second. Went to both Geno's and Pat's and both were bad. I mean bad. Geno's was gristly and gross. Pat's was slightly better.

Also one of my favorite spots in the city is the Japanese House. The house is really neat and the garden is beautiful. And of course there is a pond full of koi that you can feed.

Had a similar situation recently - somebody who lived near our neighborhood had a couple of aggressive german shepherds that kept escaping their fence and roaming our neighborhood. They actually attacked a few dogs in our neighborhood as well. Owner refused to fix the fence and refused to pretty much do anything to stop them from coming in to our neighborhood. Police and dog warden were called repeatedly but I'll tell you - they won't do a damn thing other than talk to the owner unless you have proof. When you see them in your yard, get pics and video. A dog owner in our neighborhood got a video of them attacking another dog, and they haven't been in our neighborhood since. But nothing was done about it until that happened.

Great assessment, spot on and pretty much sums up my feelings towards the game as well.

Also, personally I was pretty offended when I lived in AZ and tried to attend the game and the cheapest tickets were still astronomically expensive. I attended plenty of DBacks games (mostly to see other teams/players I liked, but still) but when they got the ASG they made it pretty inaccessible to everyday fans.

I don't watch and will continue to not watch. And I'm even a Cubs fan.

I go every year and usually bring at least one of my kids. It's always a blast. There are usually at least a few recruits that put on a show, there are Buckeye legends present, and you get to hang out in the 'Shoe for free. Definitely go!

Last time I was there we drove out to Aspen one day and went to Woody Creek. I was a big fan of Hunter S. Thompson so we went to eat (and drink) at the Woody Creek Tavern, and also went to the store next door and met his wife. I'd recommend making that trip if you have time. Aspen is a pretty cool little town.

Greg Maddux

Roy Halladay

Roy Oswalt

Johan Santana

Tom Glavine

Randy Johnson

And hopefully I'll add Jake Arrieta to the list after a couple more great seasons.

Also a side note - Kenny Powers could have been one of the best ever, if he had just put forth the effort and stayed out of trouble. Sad story, really.

I thought Jones has a 6 month injury suspension? This is shaping up to be a pretty good card.

Tony Gwynne

Manny Ramirez

Tim Raines

Moises Alou

And because I'm a Cubs fan, and he was a darn good hitter...Mark Grace.

Comment 04 Apr 2016

It's not Rick. He's the leader. Negan needs Rick to steer his people in to working for him.

Plus, it would just be too big of a deviation from the books. Rick is THE main character. It's not him. Not that I disagree with anything you're saying. It's just not happening. If Rick ever dies, which I doubt, it will either be because the show is ending or the ratings are so badly in the tank that they need to do something majorly major.

It should be Glenn or Daryl. Either of those would make the maximum impact, which is the point of all this. Abraham of Eugene would not accomplish that.

Oh, and I'm really pissed about the cliffhanger too. They built up to this moment all season and didn't really deliver. Negan was great and all, but this wasn't satisfying at all.

Comment 31 Mar 2016

Personally, my problem isn't with Diaz. It just doesn't make sense to have a new champion move up two weight classes to fight a guy who isn't even top 5 in his own weight class, and who is also moving up a class. Just because you're matching up two guys who talk a lot of smack, doesn't make it a good idea. The first time there was an injury and they were scrambling to find an opponent, I get that...but why do it again? And make it the main event on what should be the company's biggest card to date? Doesn't make sense to me at all. I'm sure it will be entertaining though, and I suppose that's what's most important.

After the Aldo fight, I would never count Connor out. Although if I were a betting man, I'd take Dos Anjos.

Comment 31 Mar 2016

I prefer dark roasts. And my office buys coffee from Brioso in Columbus so I consider myself lucky to drink that every day! That, Crimson Cup, Stauf's, or Backroom are my favorite coffee roasters.

Comment 31 Mar 2016

Am I the only one who doesn't want to see a McGregor/Diaz rematch? Didn't care about that fight the first time around, sure as heck don't now. McGregor vs Don Anjos would have been awesome (not sure on Dos Anjos injury status), and McGregor vs Edgar is a fight I would LOVE to see. I know Connor is going to move up eventually but IMO this path he's on is a mistake. UFC seems to be just letting him do whatever the hell he wants while real challengers in his weight class are waiting for an opportunity. Interim belt is a start but both Aldo and Edgar will know that it isn't a real belt.
